    Now Fantastical is mostly a outdoor level and indoors isnt so much but it sure is interesting with things like Light Bounces
    and just how the world is illuminated.


    This is Bellissas bakery and in here Henry is standing inside with light from the outside mostly illuminating the place.

    Fantastical pushes not only the amount of triangles but also materials such as Glass the glass in this world
    is very unique where it gives it a very happy fuzzy look and also reflections , shine and some blurring but the
    downfall is that the material is mega expensive and hard to use since this is in a controlled level the glass works fine.




    Henry loves to see a good community flourish and develop so does the others in a world where big corporations
    dont exist and only the people can thrive this is one of Henrys favorite stops a nice calm small town with lots of
    trees and a green so beautiful you just want to picnic on it Henry and other friends would
    visit the town and read a good book which is typical for Teenagers their age.




    This room is a unlockable if you unlock it.............. you are doing well.






    New Ability Number One.


    1. GRINDING
    Grinding has been in the game for many months now but it was painful to iron out the reason to why this was
    added is to increase his travel speed and just to make it fun to go faster Henry can also do tricks when grinding
    increasing his speed.

    Henry can get on a Rail and start grinding immediately!

    Desc: When grinding Henry enters a state of balance in a near perfect equilibrium , it is not required
    to adjust balance as this was originally intended but Henry can "Trip", what this means is that he has the
    ability to mess up either a jump off the rail or to completely fall of the rail.

    When doing tricks it is important to not over do it or you will "Hiccup" this means that his fast speed that
    he gains when doing well timed tricks will lead him to slow down to the default speed of grinding.


    DIFFICULTY: 6 / 10 "HARD".





    Alot of solidity with gameplay and alot more still to come.








    With Henry on the ready no demon shall survive!!!

    In the world of Fantastical things sure arent easy.


    So after some time playing my game it is playable from start to finish, the other new content is unlockables.

    In order to make this work somewhat i had to tone the unlocking down only slightly the content in Fantastical that is locked
    can be unlocked by playing the campaign or replaying a certain stage in the game.


    To unlock something like Break The Targets levels you can get some easily by mostly guess work from the first run of your
    campaign some other levels require revisiting some levels in order to unlock new content, levels can only be revisited when
    you have completed the game.


    -----------------------------------------------


    In Fantastical new mechanics are being worked on and some introduced various new ways to
    travel faster, new limited enhancements and enemy take downs along with others are falling well
    into place that being said alot of testing is still needed.

    In this image we have Henry and Bellissa.

    Bellissa has her own part of her dads restaurant where she likes to make sweets and she gets visited by Henry
    with alot of happiness she gives Henry a Chocolate Donut "Hes the only one she will ever give a free sweet to".


    This is a prototype of the store this is technically in the game but the way i took this image is just
    pure illustration as you can see its poorly lit.

    Henry is telling her a story and she is so immersed in his story telling.

    Whilst she is baking she likes to listen to her music with her special crystal headphones that operate with crystal
    energy.


    -------------------------------------------------

    Sweet to Sour


    Henry: Hello Bellissa

    Bellissa: Henry! please come in! are you hungry here take a chocolate donut!

    Henry: Oh thank you i did just finish lunch so i was going to get something sweet

    Bellissa: Oh wow its like we knew... oh my

    Henry: Whilst we often do meet outside with the others you do this every time i come here

    Bellissa: Which is rare! next time it will be Gelato my special recipe

    Henry: Well that sounds lovely me and the mates we could try some of that i got a tenner with me i will share it
    with....

    Bellissa: NO only you and my family can try my special treats not Plank , Swan , Elektra or
    the others.

    ** Plank blasts opens the door with the others outside with him**

    Plank: Henry! i found you tio lets....

    Henry: Oi!! we are talking and you interrupted now take that ghastly nonsense elsewhere!!!

    Plank: Uhh...... Vale tio sorry... Vamonos!

    Bellissa: That was mad the slam was loud thank you Henry

    Henry: Ehh the chap must still be happy after his mountain drilling for treasure
    he did find Tanzanite maybe thats it.

    The push to final is coming and the game is very near in tact alot of changes have happened and along with interesting mechanics
    some that i never even mentioned yet, Graphics are pretty much solidified and the game is now going to a stable version.

    Tons of tests are being done with the game making sure things are as solid as possible and playing the game from start to finish to
    ensure its playable , beatable etc..



    What will you need?

    Fantastical sure did push alot for the fancy graphical knobs but all the effort did pay of where both performance and the visuals
    can coexist together without alot of power demand.

    Fantastical can run well on a : GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM as a base level card

    Things like SSGI , Volumetrics , 1080 and most importantly 60 FPS can work well on this card but still alot of tests are being done to
    make sure this is going to go well.

    The SSGI is of course the World lighting that makes the game have its nice CGI look and feel and i made sure to do one thing with
    it and that is to give it away for free as much as possible neat advanced features like that should be experienced without the need of
    dedicated Hardware so i tried my best to get it there, The end conclusion of SSGI is Denoise level 3/half , Denoise level 4/half IS
    TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE but it will lose around 10 frames so i just said Il stick to Denoise 3 if you have something higher like a
    1050 4GB or whatever than you will have no issues going to Denoise 4 i just did this because i really maxed out all the juice of the
    GTX 1050 so not much is left in there.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CPU? RAM?

    Intel i5 or Higher / 8GB of RAM




    The game is coming together but still alot more is to be done at a later time i will reveal some more new content.

    Another update about my game.


    This is mostly focused on Performance and certain in game content.


    Alot of stuff is going on and i dont think it will slow down busy days are on my way.



    So alot of optimization has been done to the benefit of the game where there can be more content on screen at once
    while delivering better performance and creating a very unique game.


    Incoming Trailer
    ----------------------------------------
    This is nothing new but i simply didnt have the time to do so but a new trailer for Fantastical is planned to be released soon
    you can see the old Trailer which is really a teaser on the Fantastical Demo page on Microsoft.com just make sure you
    verify your age or you cant see it.

    With the trailer i plan to go hands on with some more detail on whats going on in a fun and neat way.

    "Why do you need to verify your age?" the Demo is Pegi 12 / Esrb 13 so im not sure to be honest its how the store works.
    But the final game is a solid Pegi 16 / Mature 17+ but the rating is still not solid however those ratings are guaranteed.





    DX11 further optimized
    --------------------------------
    Its very hard to trust new APIs these days because well they are still new and need more time to stretch their legs
    so i pretty much reverted to DX11 and with this comes tons of improvements compared to the other two APIs:






    -------------------------------------------
    Global Illumination is solid and ready to go!

    Get to experience Fantastical with Global Illumination whilst keeping a 60FPS on going without the need of special
    Hardware. Originally i was going to go RTX for GI but i kept the SSGI method of the UE4 in place and this results
    in a very.. expensive method of GI/Lighting but wonderful image.

    Make no mistake SSGI is very expensive but this is where the enhancements come in the game can run with this feature
    with as little as a GTX 1050 with 2GB of RAM.
    -------------
    "Why a GTX 1050"? because its very rewarding to put in so much effort on more lower end GPUs and put in so much to
    it especially at 60FPS, Fantastical is a complex game with complex characters, tons of Enemies on screen and the fact a
    GTX 1050 can run this game with SSGI at 60FPS its just a wonderful rewarding experience.

    It can run it at Half 3 or even 4 level quality/denoising "4 is currently a focus its so close to a solid 60FPS but it still lingers in the 60-50fps."






    Fun Fact
    ------------
    Fantastical was originally going to Adapt Lion Head Studios Light Propagation as a form of Dynamic GI
    but its very buggy and i did not really wanted the responsibility of maintaining it.






    ----------------------------------------
    GNU............. Bad News or "Linux".


    Oh boy this hit me back hard, So i been wanting to bring my game to Xbox One and GNU but sadly these two have their issues..

    Xbox One simply lacked the power and GNU i dont know what it is but the performance is simply not there the game is heavily optimized
    and on Windows 10 the game runs like a absolute dream but on the GNU version the frame rate is bad i mean REAL bad.

    This is kind of my fault because i was mostly focusing on things like can it run it but it requires alot of sacrifices in order to run the game
    i really dont understand the issue with the GNU version in performance it drops to like 60 - 40 without the effects / ssgi and others the game
    also crashes alot with a build and i guess its simply not stable to use the GNU version of the editor.


    Like the Xbox One im a fair person with the platforms i want to try to put my game on with GNU i gave it alot of time and
    sadly it cant run it and it does not meet my quality standards at all so the Emperor Penguin is out of the question.

    It would had been nice but oh well.

    Some big changes are coming to Fantastical and here are a few changes to the game:

    Unlockables


    - Break The Targets"
    Levels like Break The Targets was originally ment to be a side mission when playing the campaign however after thinking about
    it i made the decision to make these levels unlockable and playable outside the campaign since its always been designed as a
    special level to play and nothing to do with the campaign.

    To Unlock Break The Target levels simply play the game the more you advance onward the more levels you will unlock.


    - Rewards when completing unlockables and full game.

    If your like me you enjoy playing a game that offers unlockable content by playing and being good at the game
    Fantastical not only offers Break The Targets as unlockables or other special levels that i yet to show... it also
    offers some real neat and special modes that can only be unlocked by completing a certain objective so if you
    complete all Break The Targets levels you will receive a special new surprise for you to play.

    BEWARE.. some objectives are hard to complete!!






    Platform expansion for Fantastical

    Fantastical is now introducing a new platform to play the game in:

    Unix-Like

    Fantastical is not new to Unix operating systems,, infact its developed along side with Unix OS's not just Windows
    Unix is a huge part of its development and it was painful but the game is getting close to having a fully working Unix version
    or "GNU / Linux".

    I wanted this platform in the past but it sadly had too many problems but its getting to the point where its much more stable
    compared to the past and im working to ensure a GNU/Linux version will be a option.

    Developed on my own in house "Magnificence OS" this in house Unix-Like OS is super optimal to give as
    much power to the development process as possible compared to Windows 10.






    Fantastical and Vulkan GNU VERSION CANCELLED!

    Fantastical is now taking use of the Vulkan API along with this comes some more improvements to performance of the game
    Vulkan is the new latest API adaption i had a rocky past with this API but its getting very good performance even similar to DX11.



    Fantastical is being enhanced all the time and with Vulkan as the new elected Next Gen API the game will
    be using this API moving forward.

    Fantastical is 60FPS no matter what and playing this game requires fast reaction due to the crucial timing this game
    demands and the performance is getting better not only that but this means more enemies on screen and
    power ups , Special Effects and prettier Geometry.




    Things are getting exciting more to come about my game.

    Fantastical Update


    Long progress of Experimental features and more.


    Fantastical has been going through alot of different changes lately and many of them tend to be on the good side of things
    and it is looking like it is getting even more funner for the development of my game.



    In this post i will show some new changes and some new features of Fantastical.



    New Enhancer revealed
    Click image for larger version  Name:	FantasticalTonWaErnesto.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	130.0 KB ID:	1740937


    As i continue to develop and play the game i notice that some changes can be done to improve the gameplay of Fantastical
    this is a brand new "Enhancer" in the game that can be used called "LEMON HONEY TONIC".

    What is this new Enhancer?

    The Lemon Honey Tonic is a brand new Enhancer in the game that can give Henry special improvements for a
    limited amount of time, the Enhancers come in currently two different Flavors but up to 3 or 4 more are planned.




    Quick intro about this special drink:


    In the world of Fantastical everyone loves to create delicious drinks for everyone this
    is one of them a Soft Drink like Tonic with many incredible and delicious flavors
    the drink resembles the 8 pack minis that are often given for everyone
    to enjoy its mostly Honey and Lemon but the mixture is so perfect people simply cant get enough of it.

    This Tonic is super healthy and its very popular in Enchantium known for its Healthy Lemon and Honey mix
    that is so pure it even Glows in the Dark.

    Brilliant foodie ideas always brew in Enchantium based of favorites like Honey Lemon Bread for example.




    This drink when consumed increases Henrys "Accuracy" for example when using this Tonic Henry will be in
    a special state where he has more "GRIP" over his movement.

    The Tonic can increase his reaction time basically and can help with faster turns and even more quicker evasive
    action when things get a bit too hairy.


    Tonics however are not easy to use they take some getting use to and only 1 can be used at a time.


    Other Flavors give out different enhancements and the Tonics have a life effect of over 1 minute some last less than others
    and you dont keep the enhancements its 100% limited which is a nice balance.



    Tonics are similar to Cacao "Chocolate" in the game they both can also have HP benefit like effects for Henry.

    Cacao is more common in Fantastical Tonics are much harder to find.


    ---------------------------------------------------


    Further progression of the development of the game means more enhancements Fantastical was originally getting more expensive to run
    but it is now getting more efficient more on this one later.

    Fantastical Video Previews

    So recently i been mostly thinking of another way to share some new content of my game and of course Video came to mind.

    Video content about Fantastical is something i plan to do in mostly a steady flow so i made a YouTube to provide some videos to show.

    Video One:

    Video:https://youtu.be/Ad8PEGeu0xw

    Channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi-...SeHdVVD8NeBqNg

    The following video shows some new gameplay of current in development Fantastical, for those who played the Demo will
    notice that the level is more different than the Demo level in the Early Demo version.

    Theres alot more new in the game that i plan to show by time.


    On the YouTube channel i plan to add some videos but by time i will shift to providing video content on my own website
    this is a way to start.

    Mouse and Keyboard refine.

    From every punch , to slide and fast reactions to a Rage Punch being achieved Fantastical with Mouse and Keyboard feels very good.

    Fantastical was mostly developed for Controller on PC but the Mouse and Keyboard is a area in where the game feels like it can
    improve even more with many keys that can be used for the game without clunky button combos on the controller its almost endless.

    The controller was a original focus but mouse and keyboard is a much bigger importance in the game over a controller, new
    mechanics are in the game and with mouse and keyboard it does make the game much more funner over a controller but its a
    platformer so alot of tweaking is done in this Windows 10 game.

    What about controllers?: Its still there but the main focus on this game is mice and keys so thats there its more funner to play
    Fantastical with a Mouse and Keyboard especially with the newer mechanics in development as for controller the original controller
    used for testing and playing was a Xbox 360 controller.

    Key and Mouse has a neat feel to it and im trying to further improve the games controls with them also since its very fast pace in many cases doing things
    like turns with mouse is very snappy over a thumbstick as a example.

    Hello everyone so now i have some new content to share about my game Fantastical.


    The beauty of Rays
    Click image for larger version

Name:	raysrfeghtyuErnesto.JPG
Views:	210
Size:	47.1 KB
ID:	1730862

    Fantastical uses tons of Ray like features from Reflections , Shadows and GI its a very appealing feature that mostly kept
    me interested for many years now one of those goals is to include RayTracing features the biggest one is GI.

    GI is a fascinating thing in Fantastical and can create a very interesting CGI like effect all be it a very expensive feature
    "Even with SSGI" its my biggest interest to add this into Fantastical.

    Alot of lighting effect work is being done in Fantastical being how far it is in its development its in a point where im having fun
    creating certain effects for some of the worlds but mostly all of em.

    However the RayTracing in Unreal is not agnostic so this can create a division of who is able to enjoy such features and mostly
    Nvidia users can appreciate this with RTX Cards with large Ram and a nice big chunk of Power usage, me of course
    i went for allowing SS "GI , Shadows , Reflections and other fancy effects for those who dont use Nvidia cards to still get a feel
    of that effect.





    CASTING BY DEFAULT

    When you first play Fantastical all of these affects will come to life since Fantastical is now much more Ray dependent then it was
    in the past a heavier experience but optimal enough.









    A new Enemy is revealed.

ID:	1730863

    Alright so my latest enemy i showed was Eerie but now its time for his minions to show their faces!

    This is Eksplaud these are by far a enemy you would not want to encounter.. you see Eksplaud is a ghost like enemy that can be as dangerous
    as Eerie, this flying bubble gum looking character is no joke the design is on purpose!! its Pink and looks like some big Balloon, bubble gum and licorice candy
    but they are brutal and unfriendly cute but a easy threat.

    Eksplaud is capable of Self Destructing and even carrying spikes on his floating body if you dont hit at the right time and at the right spot and with
    proper timing this guy can very well be a issue to deal with let alone more than one, the spikes are brutal if you punch them you can harm him but yourself
    at the same time, the other thing is these guys are capable of such speed like the master Eerie.

    You will encounter these guys when you defeat Eerie in Lethal Territory, but they can be a real pain if not careful they will get you.



    Lots of new stuff are in the works for my game so more coming soon.

    Very nice screenshots. The texture you are using on some of your ground elements is really distracting. Maybe get rid of the current noise/normal maps. It might be better to use fresnel for the grass area. Nice work!

    IMAGE: SEA OF THE FAR



    The Hud and its improvements "EXPERIMENTAL"



    The new Hud in Fantastical is almost final but it still needs some improvements.


    What does it do?

    The game depicts 6 bars and all of them have their purpose:

    1. Chocolate: The Chocolate bar indicates Henrys health
    2. Rage Meter: The Rage Meter is a very heavy meter that requires the player to bombard the X button or "Pound" the
    meter when full will activate Henrys much stronger Punch.
    3. Penalty: The Penalty bar is exclusive to a very Heavy move such as Henrys Body Slam attack when done the meter will
    refill after a certain amount of time.




    What about the other meters?

    The other 3 meters are very complex and im still debating about keeping them, so basically the 3 other meters indicate "TURBINE"
    Turbine is a necessity in the game in order to travel as some levels are pretty large this is suppose to help remedy the long
    run time that Henry has to go through.


    The Vertical Meter indicates Speed limit reach when its down your slow back to Walking resulting in a "SPEED HICCUP"

    The Long Blue meter slowly depletes when its in the middle Henrys high speed
    is halfed and it creates what is called a "Precious Rush" and this is vital but extremely hard to keep.

    The last short Green bar indicates "Last Warning" why is it called that? Last Warning is one other way to maintain speed
    as long as its full and the blue meter is at least 50% full that can keep Henry going further "Precious Rush".

    If you dont use this properly it causes "SPEED HICCUPS" that will cut off Henrys full speed resulting in walking.

    Now the thing about this Mechanic is that it is so hard to use and its very complex and this is without explaining its
    invisible meters as well.

    ... So its basically for Turbine its a very hard mechanic to explain and its not even final.

    The hud is still in development and im still trying to finalize it.





    Other features still in development

    There are some big changes close to being final im still working on it aint easy but its getting there experiments
    are vital to my work and so far im pleased with how they are coming out.

    So far Fantastical is seeing some good development progress and the game continues its development.

    Some new mechanics have been in the works for a long time now and when they feel just right i will reveal them
    they are not quite ready just yet.




    Challenge levels

    One of my previously revealed challenge worlds is "BREAK THE TARGETS" i absolutely love these levels and up to 5 of them currently
    exist with each level getting much harder and full with more targets with a extremely limited amount of time that can NOT be paused for you to complete.

    The Target worlds Selena created just for Henry and her Dad to practice on will give you a good run!




    IMAGE DEPICTED: "Hello From Enchantium".

    In the current image Henry is in one of the very early worlds of Fantastical.





    Things are getting Spicy!! so more to come later.

    Xbox One Edition Progress and such..


    So lately i mentioned that i wanted to bring my game to the Xbox One and so far it was a success to get it up and running on the Xbox One.

    So in this image it shows the Xbox One version of Fantastical running on one of my screens and i took the picture on my smartphone.

    Now this is as pretty as it will get..

    Wheres the grass?: It cant have it
    Wheres the Volumetrics?: It cant have it
    Why are the shadows on Henry so weak?: It cant get any more higher

    The Xbox One version is a total failure unfortunately the Xbox One can not run Fantastical and it required so much changes
    this is a completely different build of Fantastical compared to its Windows 10 counter part this version has smaller textures, weaker effects,
    60 FPS is impossible, Grass alone is enough to tank the FPS to the 18FPS, the shadows in this build are the typical weak dynamics completly
    tossing the RayTraced shadows of the PC version.......

    This version will not work its not possible Fantastical is too demanding for it to run and unless playing a game like Crysis on the PS3 , 360 with
    unstable framerates sounds like fun this could be a situation with Fantastical for Xbox One.

    The system is simply too weak to run this game and i tried for a good long time to try to get the game up to speed but Fantastical is very
    GPU intensive and the Xbox One has a cruddy GPU that Fantastical maxes out easily.

    I was able to get the game running at 30FPS with 1080p and the optimization on that was brutal but not enough in a world that is barely 50%
    complete this world in the image is another version of Celestina but the Xbox One simply cant run it and it drops to the early 20s at certain areas.



    Conclusion

    Fantastical for Xbox One was a neat idea and i wanted to create a free demo to let Xbox players try the game but i really and i mean REALLY
    underestimated my own games demand the Xbox One just cant run the game at all and its not worth putting much effort in it any more it was quite
    a crazy and mad ride.

    Plus Fantastical for Wiindows 10 pushes graphics the characters are very round and high poly props are everywhere along with Micro detail on
    the textures and with Xbox it tosses it out the window and treats it like rubbish.


    So i gave it a shot and i simply dont want to proceed on with a Xbox One version it just cant run it.





    More content to be revealed later

    Thanks.

    Hello everyone so today i have some new content to share of my game.

    Experimentation and the long progress paying off.

    So it feels like the current progress is paying off for the Version 3 changes.

    The game has new mechanics that enhance gameplay and they seem close to being ready to go but its
    in a state that needs some more attention.






    The new attack "Ultimate Rage"
    Ultimate is a new attack that i plan to introduce to the game, Ultimate is a brand new
    attack that allows Henry to use a special move that is only given to him by meeting certain
    requirements in this case the move is Chargeable by attacking enemies as one of the requirements.

    The move powers him up and increases his attacks by pressing the designated buttons
    this uses a new attack move and not the default 3.

    Designated Buttons: B + Y





    Global Illumination For Fantastical

    So this is one of the few big new features in the game and it is very optimal now to run for gameplay

    In this image we have GI disabled and results in very weak lighting in the game worlds even bright worlds.

    In this image we have GI Enabled with this lighting effect the game is able to depict a more realistic lighting effect but in this case it
    focuses on giving the game a CGI like effect.

    The Rays bounce around and hit props displaying a more next gen lighting experience.


    Conclusion: The GI effect can work very efficient and since the game focuses on 60fps this was a huge priority to get
    done, its more advanced and demanding than the old techniques we are all used to.

    This is called "GI Mode "Friendly".


    WARNING: (GI MODE "High")
    FANTASTICAL OFFERS THIS FEATURE BUT IT IS NOT LIGHT WEIGHT EVEN WITH FACTORY SETTINGS
    THIS MODE CAN BE ALMOST 2X MORE EXPENSIVE OR HIGHER TO RUN!

    This mode does a better job at Denoising but at a massive price.

    GI AT ITS HIGHEST IS VERY EXPENSIVE.
